More Morrissey – It’s Letterman’s Fault

More on Morrissey’s postponed June 27 Pines Theater show, via an IHEG email:

“Morrissey regrettably had to end his show at Boston’s Bank Of America Pavillion last night after 30 minutes due to a throat infection that made it impossible for him to continue. The audience of almost 5000 strong experienced a fantastic opening seven numbers that included classics “The Queen Is Dead” and “The Last Of The Famous International Playboys.” During the intro to “National Front Disco” Morrissey told the audience, “We recorded the David Letterman Show last night in a studio that was 30 degrees below zero. 29 degrees below I can take but 30 below was too much and unfortunately it will not just be the emotions cracking tonight but my voice as well.” Three songs later he was unable to continue and the show came to a close. As a result the show in Northampton, MA tonight has been postponed. We hope to announce a new date in the next few days. All tickets will be honoured for the new date. The tour will continue in New York at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.”
